Re: OR15 only works with cable in effects loop

I've seen so many switching jacks fail (not in Orange amps, but in general), I would say the chance of a bad solder joint is low, although it's possible if it is a loose jack disconnected from a PC board. Also if it's a loose solder joint, the patch cable fix will likely not work. Unfortunately it's...

Re: Clipping Sound on my Micro Dark, is it defective?

I don't have a Micro Dark anymore, but I think it's completely normal if I remember how it worked. If you have the guitar's volume controls all the way up, only the first notch on the gain dial will give a clean sound, past it you get distortion. The OR15 is the same way. On the Micro Terror you can...

Re: Best 12ax7 to use inV1 in an orange amp ?

At the end of the day, there are only 3 factories, JJ, New Sensor (EH, sovtek, tung sol, mullard....) and chinese Shuguang, for modern valves. i've seen people say 3, 4, 5 and 7 on different forums. one of the best posts i've ever seen on vacuum tube makers lists 3 main current regions where they a...

Re: Anyone used the Orange Vertical 2x12?

I use a vertical 2x12 all the time and it's great. I like that I can hear myself better and It also puts your amp at a better height to be able to make adjustments easier. Also lighter to carry around than a 4x12. I use the Closed back cabinets though, I just put them on it's side. But I did Modify...

I bought mine with an amp and cab and thought I'd flip it, but it was to good toilet go. I use mine almost all the time now.
Don't flush it, it'll clog.

Re: High pitched noise from Micro Terror

I was getting a similar noise, but only in certain circumstances. Only if I plug in or unplug a cable from the input while the amp is on and the volume is not on zero. Goes away if I turn the amp off, then back on. I think it also happened if I messed with the effects (unplugged and plugged differen...

Re: Micro Terror is loud!

Yeah, it's pretty loud, especially if you have the gain higher than 9 o'clock and use some loud cab(s). Or maybe it's some weird taper, it's louder on 2 or 3 than my 50 watt all valve amp.

Re: DEFINITIVE ORANGE GUIDE TO: Overdrive/Boost/Dist/Fuzz Pedals

Lately I've been using the Joyo Ironman Metalhead with my Micro Terror. It's not only tiny like the amp, but it sounds really good because it has a mids knob and a highs knob. It has more than enough bass, and you can adjust that with the tone knob on the amp. It's really easy to scoop the mids. I t...

Re: Micro Terror VS Micro Dark

I actually think the Micro Dark is better for slight breakup, you can get a slight scoop and a bit more bass if you turn the tone knob a bit to the left, which I thought kind of sounds like 1940s jazz or1950s blues if you don't turn the gain up high. Plus supposedly the headphone jack has more emula...

Re: Photobucket I hate you!!!!

They all do that, I had Image Shack and Fotki, they both had a limit of photos until they make you pay for it and stop you from uploading further pics, although in some cases you may be able to delete old ones and put new ones in, not sure. You can certainly delete old ones. Or maybe just sign up fo...

Re: Orange Micro Dark - is worth to swap preamp tube?

I tried a bunch of them, mostly higher gain, when I had a Micro Dark. I wanted more distortion without pedals, which it sort of did, but didn't sound good, like two cascading distortion pedals with the gains maxed, kind of like a bad compressor/ripped speaker. Even the 12AT7 did that. But of course ...

Re: Orange should endorse these girls

Bass player needs a bigger amp, I can barely hear the bass in either link, even though it's a huge SVT or something in the second link.

Cool Mustang bass with humbucker in the first link though.
